CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas- The Art Center of Corpus Christi is celebrating our 40th birthday by bringing back a beloved event of the 1970’s, The Art Jamboree; a creative celebration for everyone! Instead of our annual fundraising gala, we are holding this 3-day, family friendly, community event that honors our mission to nurture regional arts as a service to our diverse community. The 2012 Art Jamboree will be an inclusive and free community event that highlights the cultural riches of South Texas, complete with lots of art, food, entertainment, and fun. Art Jamboree’s in the 1970’s fostered fellowship between the creative talent of the Coastal Bend and area residents; enriched our local creative culture, and supported the careers of many artists – artwork in your home today may have come from an Art Jamboree! As a kickoff to the Art Jamboree, we will have a very special birthday party to honor Charter Members and community sponsors on Thursday, September 27. The evening will include an exclusive culinary preview of CITRUS® and a champagne toast to our proud past and promising future. There is so much to celebrate. This beautiful landmark building and all the cultural events that take place here reflect the strong relationship between the people of the Coastal Bend and our creative community. The Coastal Bend is a better place to live as a result. Join us at the art Center of Corpus Christi and get Art Centered!
